The capital of the United States, the District of Columbia contains the lion's share of the country's most treasured monuments, memorials, and public museums.
Ford's Theatre has been added to your itinerary. Washington National Cathedral and National Gallery of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Let the collections at National Air and Space Museum and National Portrait Gallery capture your imagination. Explore Washington DC's surroundings by going to Antietam National Battlefield (in Sharpsburg), Great Falls Park (in McLean) and Fort McHenry National Monument (in Baltimore). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Tidal Basin, step off the mainland to explore Theodore Roosevelt Island Park, steep yourself in history at Audubon Naturalist Society Woodend Sanctuary, and gain insight at Georgetown University.
